Card maps made for a group that i swap with

Over the weekend I have made these three card maps for one of my internet Yahoo groups that I am on.
Once a month we have a card map sketch in which we have to make a card from. Our list Mum this year decided to tweek some of last year's cards and use these as our sketches for the card maps this year.
I think with the three I have done I am up to May now with these card maps.
Another lady does up the themes for the year for the group's swaps which means we can get ahead and get them done ahead if we so choose to do so.
Here now are the three cards that I have done.

Easel birthday card and a tri shutter 25th wedding anniversary card

I made just in the last week this birthday easel card that was a swap for one of my groups that has been running for 11 years, the theme was of course birthday and had to have 11 on it some where as well as either candles or balloons so this is why I used this great Hero Arts I think the image was birthday cupcake image.
The tri shutter card kind of evolved as I went although I had the basis of this card planned but I wanted to use 25 some where on the card and as well, flowers, hearts and butterflies. To me they all seem to go together and of course I was trying out my new flourishes nestabilities set with the silver flourish that you see.
Hope you enjoy what I have done here.
